the methodology is orthodox but has its rationale.
If the doc is monitoring then I don't really se a problem.
You original question was should you do the T3 protocol or a higher dose of armour thyroid.
They are two different animals.
In fact, if what you have is indeed "wilson's syndrome" as some call it, then armour thyorid would really have no rationale at all, as it would supply more T4 than T3.
In any case, the dosing is a completely different system, and 6 grains of armour to start with would most likely be a very problematic or even lethal starting dose.
If the wilson protocol works for you, it does not make theoretical sense to switch to Armour.
If you do decide with your physician that armour is the way to go [let's say the TSH is high which would not be as consistent with Wilson's] then a correct starting dose of about 1/2 grain to 3/4 grain should be used.
Good luck again
